We need to talk about toys...

Shiny, colourful… plastic. That’s what most toys are, 90% of them actually. That’s a lot of plastic. The world is waking up to our plastic problem, and with toys that contain a range of plastics and other materials such as metal—they often cannot be recycled.

No plastic? Fantastic!

As children spend time ‘plugged in’ and their attention spans shorten, many of today’s ‘must haves’ quickly become yesterday’s news. Attics and garages full of unwanted plastic toys, destined for landfill, is the result.  

And it’s not just the environmental impact that concerns us here at ekolife — plastic toys can also prove dangerous. I mean, have you ever stepped on a plastic building block?
